When an NFL player recommends a book about tennis you question why then you buy and in the first couple of chapters know why. An elite athlete would listen to it.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose."

We listen to books on audible on a consistent basis, but this is one that we have carried through to the end before starting another one. It keeps you wanting to come back until the end, and then you don't want it to be over.
